Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota & Terra Ceia Bay Fishing Report for 2/2/2013
Anglers fishing with me on my Action Craft flats skiff the Snook Fin-Addict, out of Siesta Key, caught and released trout, Spanish mackerel and blues in Sarasota Bay and trout, reds and a pompano in the Terra Ceia Bay area on lures and flies during the past week.
Martin Marlowe, from NY, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Monday. We fished the west side of the bay from the Middleground flat to Buttonwood Harbor where he caught and released trout and several bluefish on Ultra Hair Clouser flies fished on a sink tip fly line. Bill and Sally Wester, from Cincinnati, OH, fished the same areas with me on Tuesday. They also caught trout and blues but on CAL jigs with shad tails.
Keith McClintock and Hal D’Orazio, both from IL, fished the Terra Ceia Bay area with me on Wednesday. With a strong front approaching, we had high winds that day so it was challenging. They had good action in the afternoon catching trout, several reds and a 4-pound pompano on CAL jigs with shad tails.
The best action next week should be with trout, Spanish mackerel, blues, pompano and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Look for reds around docks, in potholes and on the edges of bars when the tide is low or on shallow flats on sunny afternoons when the tide is high.
